Question about CD Players

3 Answers

Stanton c313. I need a bit of help,if you can. I got an email about the stanton c313,and have no idea how to solve this. Here's how the email reads... thank you for your vids,they have been really really helpful, you are an inspiration to us all.Iv got a bit of a problem and i know it might not be in your line of work but im running out of options here and im desperate.I recently purchased a stanton digipak pro v2 and updated my firmware to v31303213 to try out the vinyl emulation which works really well but scratching aint my thing and wanted to deactivate the vinyl emulation and since theres no button to deactivate the vinyl emulation on the stanton c313,problem now is that restoring the unit to factory default still retains the updated firmware and Thus vinyl emulation is still activated and mixing on the c313 with vinyl emulation is just a nightmare, everytime you touch the jog wheel(and even if you touch the jog wheel on the outer edge) the track basically starts up from stop, so theres no continuation or free flow of the track playing,since im from South Africa we have no direct support from Stanton,iv sent them buckets of e-mails but no response,if you konw of someone who can help me or have better communication for support from Stanton there in the U.K,id really appreciate it if you can help out,im really desperate!!!!!!!

Re: stanton c313.

You can download the Original firmware from stanton's site and do the same procedure as you did when you updated to '<br />Vinyl' scratch. The only difference is that instead of holding down the 'Mode' key when restarting your CD Player, you hold down the 'Clear' key. And it comes back to original settings.<br /> <!-- from fixya rte -->

Re: stanton c313.

If you go to mate and find the cd deck you have, then click on the updates and download the orginal "c312" file and install it like you would with the new "vinyl emulation" update all will be restored, it actually explains how to do it better on the actual website! if you have any problems mate feel free to email me at

I might be wrong by thats what ive seen/heard

Clean your CDs before and after playing them. Although the compact disc has a much longer lifespan than does something like a cassette tape, it can be more fragile. Scratches, dust or other damage to the data side of the CD will cause many CD players to fail to read the CD or cause the CD to skip.

Examine the type and format of the compact disc if your CD player fails to read it. Verify that your CD player can read the type of CD and the files contained on it. Just because you've burned a collection of songs to a CD, for example, doesn't mean that your CD player will be able to recognize that information. You must burn CDs in a specially formatted "Audio CD" mode to play them on a CD player, or your CD player must be able to recognize the MP3 file format. Some CD players have limitations on the type of CD they can read. Verify that your CD player can read CD-R, CD+R, CD-RW or CD+RW compact discs.

Update your CD player's driver, if your CD player is a drive connected to your computer. Click "Start" and select "Control Panel." Click on "Hardware and Sound" and select "Device Manager" under "Devices and Printers." Right-click the icon for your CD drive and select "Update driver software." This may solve any issues the drive was having with playing CDs.

Stanton C500 Dual CD Player

hi, check that when the right side tray closes the screen must show up READ or DISC CHECK. the behaviour must be the same as the left side cd deck. if loading is faulty then the cd tray is out of alignment or sensing swithches are faulty. if disc is loading then u have a laser pickup problem or the laser ribbon cable is intermittent or the spindle motor is tired or the laser lens needs accurate cleaning. cheers.
